% while the economy added 3.4 million new jobs, all of which sounds great but a federal deficit would rise by $503 billion in 2013 and another $67682 billion. is the emerging choice jobs versus larger, short-term deficits. given the acrimony between the white house and the house of representatives is a deal likely? erskine bowles wrote today in "the washington post" and i quote... but throughout the campaign, president obama insisted that any deal must include tax hikes on the well-to-do. something this campaign senior as viser david axelrod emphasized today. >> he talked about it in debates and speeches. on the need for balanced deficit reduction that included some new revenues and he was re-elected by you know, in a significant way. but if the attitude is that, you know nothing happened on tuesday, that would be unfortunate. >> eliot: that seems to be house speaker john boehner's attitude toward any tax hike at all. take a listen. >> raising tax rates is unacceptable and frankly it couldn't even pass the house. i
the economy. some of you may remember that bill clinton years on the economy were the best they had ever been in american history. it was the same old people that were taking advantage of circumstances that presented itself. that basically -- with a reduced electorate. no, i do not think they have a future. there is a congressman from georgia named paul brown who happens to be a doctor. he thinks that the big bang theory and evolution are works of the devil. you know, that is not the future. go to maryland, go to the maryland suburbs and look at the companies that are making billions of dollars doing genetic research. genetic research is all about evolution. >> are there additional questions? >> i just wanted to ask about when you saw effective black and latino alliances during the 2012 election? >> and the places where there were blacks and latinos living in proximity, all the states where there are both black and latino populations, in florida, virginia, less so in colorado. the black population is fairly small. nevada, definitely. the right in the country and especially the ultraconservati

important issue was. the economy was way up on top, almost 3/5ths of people said the economy was the number-one issue. the percentage who said that foreign policy was the most important issue was down in the single digits. that is not the driver. foreign policy is usually not the biggest driver. it is worth noting that those voters who said that foreign policy was the most important issue, president obama won that group. host: that made for about 5%. the economy, 59% put that as the most important issue. federal budget deficit, 15%. talk about how the health care law played into voters' attitudes? 18% said it was the most important issue. guest: that is an important thing. almost one in five voters said that health care was the most important issue. the president won roughly three- quarters of that vote. throughout the republican primaries, the issue of obamacare was a huge rallying cry. in 2010, the republicans won some big victories because of anger on the part of conservative voters about the president's health-care law. by the time you get to this election, you see this turnaround were

things resolved, get the economy back on track. but, i think it's undeniable based on the results in the house, in the senate as well as the presidency that people are supporting the idea of a more progressive version of the government designed to stand-up for the middle class and that we are all in this together and people aren't on their own and shouldn't be on their own. i'm hopeful the republicans in the house of representatives will come to the conclusion they can't continue to stand by a hard line position of no compromise. the one thing i think is clear is the american people want government to work and that's going to require compromise. >> the american people want government to work. wanting it doesn't make it so. ed, you are an outspoken supporter to mitt romney and a donor to a super pac. >> yes. >> i can understand how you feel about the presidential election because the person you were backing didn't win. when you look at the senate and congress and how congress is going to work with the president, how you interpret or understand the election results? >> one thing is
the only democratic candidate running on a record of a weak economy and debt crisis that we face and still win. yet, he did. they did very many things that were right. you can point to a couple of things with mitt romney. he may not have been the perfect candidate for 2012 given his corporate turnaround background, secondly, he did not get something republicans have counted on and that is the white working-class voters. in states like ohio, the ads attacking mayor romney as a corporate raider and buccaneer that went on for many months put on by the obama campaign seemed to work. the white working-class vote did not turn out for mitt romney in the numbers he needed. host: you had a piece yesterday, "the survivor in chief." you know to that they expose the myth of the enthusiastic democratic voter. guest: it was a myth i subscribe to for a while. i am sure you read about this over and over again. the democratic voters were dispirited and they were not feeling enthusiastic about the campaign. it was the conservatives and republicans fired up and getting ready to go. the notion was, he would h
-book "beyond outrage:what has gone wrong with our economy and our democracy and how to fix it" is now available on paper work. good evening. >> good evening. >> eliot: i want to pars where the republicans are. has the republican relationship willing to increase marginal tax rates. >> no, they have not said that they're willing to increase marginal tax rates at all. they said they're willing to increase revenues which is different from increasing rates. you can increase revenues by closing a few loopholes, putting a limit on certain deductions but they have not come around in any way something that equals grover norquist and the pledge. >> eliot: i don't want to jump on the media for mischaracterizing but the media wants to see a conversion of interest or views between the president and john boehner. i'm not sure that i see it yet. the president said you have to go to the clinton area, 36% top marginal rate. and you said a few loopholes that's fine but not the real battle we should be undertaking. am i correct? >> now boehner we're back to where we were before the election in some respects. ther

and pushing the sequester off. it won't get us out of the problem and it will also hurt our economy. because the american people expect us to find common ground, we're willing to accept some additional revenues via tax reforl. >> now, when i hear that, i don't hear i'm okay letting taxes go up on some people. i hear i'm okay closing loopholes and deductions where some high income earners may pay more than others. is that a deal you could work with? >> the question is is, what is speaker boehner saying? he really talking about a balanced approach or what he used to talk about and republicans have claimed, which is another round of tax breaks for wealthy people will somehow trickle down, magically boost the economy so much that it will pay for itself and not increase the deficit. we know that doesn't work. and if that's what speaker boehner's talking about, then really, it's not going anywhere. now, if he's talking about what we call genuine budget revenue, that's a different story and if that's the case, i'd love to see his proposal. the president has put his on the table for revenue. let's s
cuts to expire given the impact that's predicted on the economy? >> look, one hopes that these warrings factions that we have in washington will reach a compromise before january 1st. >> but david corn says that's virtually impossible. >> i don't understand what's so hard about this because the other thing that bill kristol said is that back when the economy was strong, he referenced 82 to 85 in the reagan administration when marginal tax rates were 50%, the other time the economy was really strong was during the second clinton administration when marginal tax rates were 39.6%. that's what president obama is talking about doing. going back to 39.6%. the economy took off. this should be a no-brainer. you're asking people to pay a little bit more to help out the whole fiscal health of the nation. come on. it's time to -- people have been partying since it's been 1999 for like 25 years. it's time to do this very simple thing. >> martin, i would submit what's so hard about it is january 3rd is still ahead of john boehner. he still has to be reb elected speaker by his own caucus. i think the
of our economy. there will be many who will say with the election over, we should confront the first challenges by electing the top two tax rates expire and pushing it off to somewhere else. they have lessing based in the same temporary policies that have put this into this fix. now they are saying, let's have more of the same. let's to drive our economy of the fiscal cliff and we will call it a day. that might get us out of town but it will not get us out of the problem and it will hurt our economy. we cannot keep going on like that, we cannot set the bar that low. it is time we raise the bar. the american people this week did give us a mandate to simply do the simple thing -- they elected us to lead. they gave us a mandate to work together to do the best for our country. we know what the best thing is, an agreement that sends the signal to our economy and to the world that after years of hunting on the fiscal challenges we face, -- punting the fiscal challenges we face, 2013 is going to be different. if we want to lift the cloud of debt hanging over our country. we will not solve t
were the issues americans cared about. economy and then a big storm on the east coast. they covered it and they covered it pretty well. >> jon: the exit polls thought that voters mitt romney was better equipped to handle the economy than barack obama. >> then it says something about the attitude toward the two men and they made a choice or the two parties and they made a choice. if you just go by viewers, fox mrs. msnbc, romney should have won three to one. >> jon: exit polls, some suggest reflected sort of the media theme that barack obama is a kiachbd of the little guy and middle-class and mitt romney is a rich guy that only cares about rich guys? >> i think it's clear that obama is the person who is looking to have middle-class tax cuts and mitt romney was to give tax cuts to rich people. what i would say, the reason i don't think the media played as big of a role in this. the reason barack obama won is because he ran a superior campaign. it was very targeted in these battleground states. i would be more interested in seeing exit polls from the battleground states which unfortuna
. the same rate we had when our economy created nearly 23 million new jobs, the biggest surplus in history, and a whole lot of millionaires to boot. >> that was before the election. that was in the -- let's see, think some convention? very clear where president obama was and very clear where the american people voted. americans want progressive action, including higher taxes on the wealthiest americans. this is a pivotal moment for the democrats. the republicans are already trying to make it hard. president obama reached out right after the election victory. he was told that they were already asleep. today speaker boehner told abc news tax increases are still off the table. >> putting increased revenues on the table but through reforming or tax code. i would do that if the president were serious about solving our spending problem and trying to security or entitlement programs. >> revenue through reforming or tax code? this is the same stuff voters just rejected. this was a bright spot in boehner's interview. he was asked if republicans will still pursue full repeat. >> i think the election
into the economy -- did not sell much creating jobs -- i am focused on trading business for the small people -- the people trying to become middle- class. there would have been more going around it. everybody has ideas. the thing we need to focus on is seriously alternative fuels. with alternative it feels, -- alternative fuels, other people can have a chance to put their idea not so much in big oil -- everybody gets a piece of the pie. host: on your comments about how much money was spent. here is "usa today." on the issue of whether or not the big wealthy donors cut their money's worth. go ahead shirley. caller: the people in this country are so tired of the fighting in the washington. like the one candidate said, if they do not do their jobs, they do not get paid. we, the people, have to start taking these matters into hands. we are sick of it. what i would like to tell john boehner is, do not cave in to the craziness. this is nothing but craziness. i watched harry reid yesterday. he talked and talked and really said nothing. i thought to myself, all you do is dance around these bills tha
it laid out his economic plan for how to build an economy, strengthen the economy. that is obviously a central focus of not just the next few weeks, but the next four years. part of that is to reduce the deficit in a balanced way. obviously we have some deadlines approaching. one of the messages sent by the american people throughout the campaign, as jim misener mentioned, clearly shows the president's view of making sure that the wealthiest americans are asked to do a little bit more in the context of reducing our deficit in a balanced way. it is clear that the voters did not be a compromise as a dirty word. it is essential for democracy. balance is another important component. hopefully in the aftermath of the election our leaders in both parties and around the country will do the right thing here to help move our economy forward. as the president often said during the campaign, we've got a lot more work to do, but we have made progress, and we have to build on that. this is one component of how we do that, moving forward. >> always curious, did you ever think michigan was seriousl
cuts that would cause uncertainty and damage to the economy if they're not dealt with. extending those tax cuts for 98% of the american people would deal with more than half in dollar terms of the impact caused by the fiscal cliff. there are other challenges that we would need to address, including the sequester, but congress ought to the house out to pass those tax cuts right away. it would send a tremendous positive signal to the american people that in the wake of this election, we can at the very least come together and convert into law a bill that everyone aa agrees should become law. republicans and democrats alike, the president included. and we will then continue to work on those issues where we have broader disagreement, and that's why the president has invited leaders of congress here to the white house next week. that's why he will be meeting with business leaders and labor leaders and others to get their input and ideas about how to move forward. as he said he does have his own very specific plan that reduces the deficit by $4 trillion. that does
